She graduated from Bear River High School in 1959, and attended Weber College. She began her career at the IRS in 1966, after 32 years, retiring in 1998 in upper-level management. She made many good friends during these years, and many have said, “Once her friend, you were always a friend for life.” Sherry was a gifted, creative person & artist. She was a meticulous record keeper, and loved her family’s history & genealogy, reading, babies & children, and the beauty of all things in nature. She was always interested in current events, politics, and the things that affected the lives of the people she loved. She was the first one to wish you a happy birthday, or congrads on an achievement. She was proud and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she held many callings over the years. A noble & valiant servant of the Lord, and devoted follower of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She appreciated the services of the Visiting & Home Teachers. Above all else, Sherry loved all of her family. She was proud of her daughter, grandchildren, her siblings & their spouses, and all of their posterity. She was a grandmother to all.

To all that I met with Sherry: Christy, Shayli, Lori, Ranae,
I am so sorry to hear about Sherry's death. She was a lovely lady who I learned from at each of our visits. She sure did love her family and cats---a love we shared.
